Plaza de Armas in Durango, Mexico

Visitors to Mazatlan and Guadalajara, Mexico should make sure to take a road trip out to the city of Durango. With roughly 1.5 million residents, Durango has Mexico's second-lowest population density. 

 

But what it lacks in residents, Durango surely makes up with amazing architectural beauty. Durango is surrounded by such attractions as the Chihuahuan Desert to the northeast, the Sierra Madre on the western edge and the Altiplano in
the central interior.

 

Unlike the popular cities such as Cancun and Acapulco, Durango is still not heavily flooded with touristy foot traffic. This undiscovered Mexican gem will surely make for an amazing and memorable trip.

 

No visit to Durango is complete without a stop by La Quebrada, which is the deepest canyon system in North America. Yes deeper than both the Copper and Grand Canyon!

 

If you decide to rent a car, be sure to take a scenic drive from Durango to Mazatlan on Mexico Highway 40. You will most definitely not be disappointed by the beauty that will surround you along the way!
